Autistic Resources

This page will be an ongoing work of love, support and education.  As a late identified Autistic person parenting an Autistic teen, I am aware of the lack of support and the lack accurate information out there and I hope to bring together great resources I find along the journey.  

I find it hard to compile such lists as there is no end to them and it never feels complete, but I am choosing to keep it open and ongoing so as to be able to support as many people as I can.  This list is a beginning.  If you have found a great resource, please let me know.

I have another resource page for general parenting resources that are helpful for all.  Click here for
